I didn’t know Ben and Jerry’s made a “Dog Face” flavor…

Waking up this morning was interesting.  There was a flurry of activity at my bedside and as the haze of sleep lifts I hear more and more clearly the wife repeating: “Show him what you have.  Go on.” The fog clears and I notice the wife’s dog, Pebbles, licking her own chops vigorously.  The wife […]

“Hope?”

June 13th, 2015

Things have been really tight recently, fiscally speaking.  Choosing between mortgage and food for the month kind-of-tight.  But recently I’ve come into some work and my mood has lifted.  Below is a snippent of a conversation between me (ME) and the wife (TW): ME: Ya know, I’m feeling not so bad… TW: I’ve noticed you’ve […]

New sunrise, new year

January 1st, 2012

My previous sunrise excursion seemed popular with the locals (the wife, as well as Thing 1 and Thing 2 (Baxter and Pebbles) ) so I thought I would try it again.  This time I planned it in advance – and gave the wife fair notice.  While the roads to the beach were nearly empty, we […]

Definitely Pulchritudinous

The wife survived the most recent round of layoffs at her workplace, they let about 50% of the entire building go, close to 66% of her immediate department.  Brutal.  She was ‘restructured’ into a new department and given an additional title to go with her new responsibilities.  I let her know that she was missing […]

Vacationing: It’s All About The Company You Keep

October 23rd, 2008

Back from a vacation that was cut short by several days. Let me say that I do like the Florida Keys, its very nice down there – tropical foliage, blue waters, constant sea breezes.  The problem I have is that there are people there.  And most, if not all of them, are there exclusively to […]

Morning (Not Quite) Routine

September 29th, 2008
No Comments

I was about ready to pull away from the house on my way to work when I noticed the windows the wife had tried to open over the weekend were stuck open. I was able to push one closed from the outside, but I needed a pair of screwdrivers to fix the other one. I […]

Baxter: Sommelier Extraordinaire

September 2nd, 2008
No Comments

The wife and I have the mother-in-law over for dinner. We’re catching her up on the renovations and adventures in home repair, when I hear the dog lapping at his water dish. I continue talking a few seconds before the *CRASH* of glass shattering makes me perk up. Naturally, a noise that loud from the […]

Living Room Renovation (Stage 4)

May 2nd, 2008
No Comments

At this point the wife is in tears. Among other things, she doesn’t like the “Almond Glaze” color. It has been a long day for her (and myself) and the yellow color was just too much. It’s a little greener than I’d though it would be, but the more I see it, the more I […]

Broadcasting Bad Mojo

The wife and I have decided to renovate the living room. Take a look here and you can probably figure out why. We have just spent the entire weekend researching and comparing furniture at the multitude of retail furniture outlets around here. We’ve come to an agreement on some of the major items: new flooring, […]

Took the wife to Disney’s Magic Kingdom here in Orlando, Florida over the Chirstmas break as my present to her.
